Fincher has been attached to The Killer since 2007.

The filmmaker’s frequent collaborator Andrew Kevin Walker, who wrote the scripts for Fight Club and Se7en, will author the The Killer’s screenplay.

The Killer was originally created in 1998 by writer Alex Nolent, who wrote under his pen name Matz, and artist Luc Jacamon.

Fassbender portrays an in-demand assassin who begins to emotionally unravel after developing a conscious.

Although the project was originally in development at Paramount, The Killer was placed into turnaround and subsequently picked up by Netflix.
